In the news today:
Real Madrid’s former Valencia defender, Raul Abiol has emerged as the latest name to be linked with Arsenal in today’s Metro.
The Spanish international is out of favour with the Spanish giants, and manager, Jose Mourinho is apparently willing to discuss and £8m deal for the defender.
Albiol, part of the squad that won the World Cup last summer, is well behind in the pecking order at Real with Sergio Ramos, the club’s first choice right-back usually moving inside ahead of the Spaniard if necessary.
At 25 years old, Albiol certainly has a lot to offer still but importantly, also has ample experience that could aid a youthful backline that Arsenal currently possess.
Albiol can also play at left-back which would answer the void left by Gael Clichy’s departure while he has also been known to feature in midfield too during his younger days at Valencia.
